Recording Fees

NOTICE REGARDING HOMELESS TRUST $3 SURCHARGE:

At the present time, Sussex County is NOT participating in the “Homeless Prevention Trust Fund” grant program. DO NOT include the $3 document recording surcharge in with your standard recording fees and DO NOT submit a separate check for that amount. Doing so will result in us having to return your check and may, in some cases, delay the recording of your document.
